SAFE OR TOXIC.? Smells like plastic?

So I just got a new ill castle for my cheekie but I read an article about them smelling funny. I rinsed the ornament and it kinda smells like plastic, like a new toy or somthing. I just wanna know if its safe? It's made by PENN PLAX any one heard anything bad about their products?

Not so good things have been reported lately about pennplax. If you use the ornament watch out for the paint bubbling. Bad smelling plastic ornaments is not necessarily a problem.

I think there is a spray you can get to seal it before putting it in your tank

I have an ornament made by Penn-Plax as well that had a strong plastic odor. I soaked it in boiling water for about an hour, hour an half. Then I rinsed it off in cold water and soaked again in room temperature. Now I only smell the plastic on the inside which isn't very strong at all, only if you are picking it out. I put it in my aquarium and haven't had any problems!

I'm confused about the links randomly in the middle of his replies...is it just me that can see them? One is for shoes and boots or something and the other is for camera cards, I'm not sure

It seems like this member is genuinely responding to threads, but then there are two advertisements mixed up in each message....

I know that this board has advertising, like your last post had a link in the words "the middle", but his/her links are random and have nothing to do with what (s)he is typing...
